Apple Removes App Accused of Promoting Conversion Therapy

Truth Wins Out has won its battle to remove an app accused of promoting conversion therapy from the Apple Store. The national LGBTQ group had launched a petition Thursday demanding that Apple remove the “bigoted and hateful app” developed by Living Hope Ministries, a self-described “Christian ministry for sexual wholeness” based in Arlington, Texas. The app, Truth Wins Out claimed, was targeting LGBTQ young people in order “to change [them] from gay-to-straight through prayer and therapy.” It had been available to download on the platform for three years. On Friday, a day after the petition launched with only 356 signatures, Apple removed the app from its store, a move that was hailed in a statement from Truth Wins Out executive director Wayne Besen.
